Church of England Diocese of Lincoln Great Ponton

Holy Cross, Great Ponton

The Church of Holy Cross, Great Ponton, was built in the 13th century, and is an example of fine Gothic architecture. At the top of the tower, there is a distinctive gold weather vane. This is a copy of one donated by a 17th century musician, who played his fiddle for the Great Ponton villagers. The congregation maintain a commitment to the Book of Common Prayer, the foundation of Anglican worship, but are looking to introduce more modern liturgy at some services.

Most of the time at church we are like a big happy family. However even in very happy families people can have a bad day and even people we know and trust can upset us. We want to help everyone have good days all of the time. We try to make sure that people who have jobs in the church always behave well and in a way that is helpful to you. We never want anyone or anything in church to frighten you, confuse you or worry you. It is important that you tell us if something is upsetting you or if you are feeling worried about something that’s happening or something somebody is doing. We have specially trained people who you can talk to and who you can ask for help. These people are good at safeguarding. This means they look after everyone’s safety. Caring for people is a very important part of our Christian life.
The people who can help you are the parish priest or the parish safeguarding officer. Your Parish Priest and the sageguarding officer for your parish is listed below. If you wish to speak to someone outside the church you can contact the diocesan safeguarding team – their contact details are available here. There is also information there about other places from where you can get help or advice.
